Lighting Effects Overhaul 0.1.5


• Description:

Inspired by playduck's 4K Bokeh Overhaul and Anime_Boom's Corona Begone this mod simply replaces default bokeh for other shapes that you choose, has different types of coronas & flares and even vehicle shadow improvements.

• Notes:
• Open images in new tab and zoom in to better see the difference.
• All screenshots have used the mod in one way or another though not seeming like it.


• Mod Features:

• All 2K Textures
• Different bokeh shapes based on real life lenses: Anamorphic & 5, 6, 8 & 9 Blade Lenses
• Option to eliminates Coronas for a cleaner look
• Option to eliminates Flares for a cleaner look
• Realistic Car Shadows
• Fixes the "there is a big beam from every light" issue (Flares)


• Changelog:

• Removed Circle
• Removed 7 Blade
• Removed 10 Blade
• Made 5 Blade more round
• Made 6 Blade more round
• Made 8 Blade more round
• Added "Clean Corona & Flare" Preset
• Added "Car Shadows"


• FAQ:

• Does this work in the Rockstar Editor?
Yes, just as much as in game or actually even better since you have much more control and options.
Also you can record with one preset such as "5 Blade", exit out the game, change it to another preset such as "Anamorphic" and it will appear like that.
The Preset will appear regardless of what was recorded.

• How can I get bigger bokeh effects?
This mod does not change the size of the bokeh effect. The effect is, by default in game, determined by the intensity of the light source and the distance from it.
Meaning that the brighter the light source is the more noticeable it will be, not bigger.

• Why is some bokeh circular and with a shape?
This mod does not make absolutely all bokeh effects with the preset you chose, the transition from a circle to one of the bokeh shapes look is established by the distance of the light source to the player, not the camera.

• Does this have any performance hit?
None that I've experienced after hours of gameplay all of the types of presets.

• Is this compatible with VisualV/NaturalVision/etc?
Yes, this is compatible with every graphic mod out there, just be sure to install the graphic mod then this one.

• Is this compatible with E.V.E? (Extended Video Export Motion Blur)
Yes and it does not effect/distort the bokeh effects in any way.

• Will you make .oiv's for this mod?
Yes but in some time when it's at least at 1.0 since this is in very early stages and still needs a lot of work and more to it.

• Does this work with motion blur mods?

• Why not 4K textures?
Because cool as it is, it's overrated and these are textures that wouldn't display in 4K anyways from the distance that they're at to the player.

• How can I take screenshot as these?
I will be making a full detailed forum on how at least I take and edit my screenshots the soonest possible.


• Installation:

Note that this is a manual install (not a "drag and drop") because of expecting that the user has graphic/visual mods installed which could edit graphics.ytd.
This said the installation instructions and troubleshooting help can be found in "Readme" when downloaded.


• Mods used for screenshots:

NaturalVision Remastered by Razed
• Sims 4 Custom Female Ped by alex189 & saldin93
